Guitarist and R.E.M. co-founder Peter Buck has been busy recording their latest album due out early next year, but that’s not the only pot he’s stirring. Recently, he collaborated with Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody and Richard Colburn of Belle & Sebastian in the Americana outfit they named Tired Pony. Their debut album, The Place We Ran From is due out on July 12 in the UK and September 28 in the US.
Along side that project, Buck has also been announced to contribute his guitar and mandolin expertise to the sixth album from Oregon’s the Decemberists (also due out early next year).
